A positive workplace environment shows strong nurse leadership. Nursing leadership, including the ability to care for patients and their families, often times seems overwhelming. This book, Fostering Nurse-Led Care, delivers a nurse-patient relationship model. The model defines itself as a relationship based on mutual trust, respect, hope and being sensitivity to others while incorporating recommendations from the Future of Nursing Report.
Fostering Nurse-Led Care details how to create a professional practice model and an environment in which initiatives can flourish and advance quality healthcare. The book also shows examples of quality standards optimization, implementing patient safety measurements, and balancing cost with quality, as well as building an effective learning environment and resolving conflicts and ethical dilemmas.
